       that landline phone that you really don’t use because it is just causing you to spend more
       money. Try to get rid of unnecessary bills as much as possible so that in case you get
       laid off, there will be less things for you to pay for.

       companies as soon as you get laid. These may be simple things but they can really help
       you out a lot if you start on it early. Also, you will have a faster chance of getting a new
       job if you do this.

      Get in touch with your old friends or contacts because they can help you out in getting a
       new job. It would also help to make new friends and pay attention to anyone who is
       hiring. Check out newspapers as well because there will be ads posted on it.

      If you really think that you’re going to get laid off, don’t wait for it to happen, instead, start
       fixing your resume and start sending them to other companies you plan to work for.

Don’t forget to pay for all of your bills as well. Because it will improve you credit score and your
credit rating, which will actually come in handy if you’re going to get a loan if in case you get laid
